Ludum Dare is a worldwide game jam where games are made from scratch in a weekend. This weekend (October 4th-7th) is Ludum Dare 45, and we're excited to make the full version of Construct 3 completely free to use for the full duration of the jam!

All features will be available, including the mobile app build service, the new JavaScript coding feature, the new Timeline animation features, and everything else. It's the ideal time to try out Construct 3 - if you're taking part in Ludum Dare, give it a go!

How to use it

All you need to do to use the full version of Construct 3 for free during the jam is:

  1. Make sure you've registered a free account
  2. Visit editor.construct.net to load Construct 3
  3. Log in with your account (choose Menu - Account - Log in) - you'll then have access to the full version!

Ludum Dare 45 starts on Friday 4th October at 10pm UTC (6pm EDT/3pm PDT), which is the time Construct 3 will become available to use for free for the next 72 hours. Until then you can still use the free edition to familiarise yourself with Construct - perhaps start with the Beginner's guide to Construct 3 if you're new.

Good luck!

For more information see the Ludum Dare website, including the rules. Please do mention Construct as the engine or framework if you make a submission!

We’d love to know if you’re joining the Jam, so share your creations with us! Use the tags #MadeInConstruct, #Construct3 or #Construct2, or tag us directly on Twitter or Facebook using @ConstructTeam and we’ll share as much as we can! There's also the official Ludum Dare hashtag #LDJAM and they're @LudumDare on Twitter.

Have fun!

  • I made this entry with C3 ( ldjam.com/events/ludum-dare/45/0-lives ) But I need to fix some bugs and the time's over, there's no possibilities of add a couple of hours more?
